“Life is simple: we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent, and God is shining through it all the time” – Thomas Merton

My dad taught me an appreciation for nature while working in the garden on Saturdays and also on Sunday afternoon walks. I went to university and learned about ecology and I was a plant breeder for a while. I am in awe of creation and the myriad of intricacies that exist. I still love gardening and walking.

I am also contemplative. For the most part my pictures are taken outside where I find plenty of metaphors that comment on life. I always carry my camera so that I can capture those moments that speak to me. I love how photography lets me express myself without words. I have a webpage as part of an online photography group.

I developed as a photographer using books written by Bruce Barnbaum and Freeman Patterson as inspiration and guidance. I have been a member of a number of different camera clubs and have won some awards at the annual Halton Hills Photo Art Competition.

In 2017 I took an online photography course (Michigan University) and held my first show called “The Joy of Creation”. This year I am part of a group exhibition at the 2019 SCOTIABANK CONTACT Photography festival.
